After nine trips to Vegas this year, too many losses, Bellagio fountain shows, long hauls, stripper poles, Mirage volcanoes, short pay bar tops, women of questionable character, bad choices, and the same old routines, an offer appeared that made me bite: Three nights at Harrahs, Laughlin and airfare for $269. The kicker was the taxes included, ground transport and the bag. Allegiant usually charges $50 a bag so in my mind that brought this trip down to a manageable $229. Alright dammit, I'm in. I had a similar offer earlier this year for Tahoe but we had already bought and paid for Vegas so I had to let it slide. I would much prefer Tahoe over Laughlin having been to Tahoe twice and quite enjoying it. Oh well. I know many of you may be asking WTF but I have found myself wandering like an animal on a game trail in Vegas lately. Not bored but certainly falling into a routine. I am not complaining but somethings gotta give. Maybe a downtown only trip or something but a change up was due. So I'm not really sure how this ones gonna look everybody but I'm hoping you will all like it. It will be pool weather this weekend so that will be nice. I am not sure who this offer was open to but I am hoping Diamond status gets me something better than a standard Laughlin room as the standard Harrah's room in Vegas (from what I've heard) is pretty brutal. I am looking forward to an old school vibe. Sort of like DT Vegas meets the Colorado River. The only items of any structure are Joe's Crab Shack, and Grapevine Canyon. Has anybody been there? Details? Travel distance from our hotel etc? It would be appreciated. Oh...other structured items...booze..and excessive gambling. Any suggestions for eats or activities are welcome! Now I must temper expectations just a little with the following disclosures: I will be with gf I will not be with Beejay I will be on a smaller bankroll to conserve for my December trip with Beejay, Macker, Jay and Fun Ty. Now, let the Laughlin Hookers roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
